Jalapeno Coleslaw

Jalapeno coleslaw

Coleslaw is a favorite at cookouts, barbecues, and picnics. All these wonderful outdoor activities are popular for Memorial Day, July 4, and Labor Day, or just about any time during the warmer months when everyone wants to be enjoying the sunshine.

This coleslaw recipe is a nice change from traditional slaw. Instead of a heavy mayonnaise dressing, it uses a light oil and vinegar dressing – but it has a kick. This coleslaw contains jalapeno peppers! Increase or decrease the amount of peppers you use to suit your own taste.
